Hi guys.
I've deleted my Automator some time ago, and now I need it.
I managed to reinstall it from the OS X Install DVD, but it says that the version is not compatible with my current version of Mac OSX...
I'm on Snow Leopard, 10.6.8, and the Automator version on the DVD was 2.0

Any chances I can update the automator without having to go through all system reinstall and update?!

Thanks in advance!

Give Pacifist a try. It should allow you to look inside the OS X installer package and install just Automator. It may take some digging to find the Automator file to install. I don't have the disc in front of me to check the exact location.

If automator was updated during a software update, you could try installing the 10.6.8 combo update.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I installed Pacifist and managed to find the install package of automator, but that was the problem. The version of Automator that was on the DVD was the 2.0 that is not compatible with Snow Leopard...

I'm gonna try the update pack though. Thanks!
